What's In My Bag?

When I first fully ventured into photography in 2007, I was interested in learning what equipment other creatives were using to help create their photographs. Since then, I am frequently asked what are some of my favorite cameras, lens, and tools, so here is it!


  • Canon 5D Mark IV - Primary camera

  • Canon 5D Mark III - Backup camera


  • Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II  - this is my current versatile, go-to lense, but my preferences change throughout the year.

  • Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L

  • Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II 



  • Westcott Icelight 2 - provides a soft, beautiful, and controlled light source when needed.

  • Godox AD200 w/ modifiers

  • Canon speedlights

I utilize the gorgeous, natural light in my Longmont studio, but I do use various lighting setups, and techniques when I want to create different stylized imagery.


  • Kelly Moore Libby Bag - favorite for everyday to/from studio, very stylish!

  • Hex Calibre Backpack - favorite for destination/air travel—this nifty bag fits everything I need and also acts as a carry-on if traveling.

  • Shootsac - favorite shoulder lens bag for on-location sessions—this soft and bendable bag keeps everything in reach while shooting.

Camera straps:

  • Spider Pro camera hand strap + holster: favorite strap while I’m working in the studio.

  • Holdfast Money Maker: favorite strap on-location outdoors.

A few other things you'll find in my bag: camera batteries, sd memory cards + holder , Mefoto travel tripod, reflector, eneloop batteries, laptop, gum, pocket fold-up flats, instax, notepad and creative shoot-through items (prizm, lace, etc).
